Help show our wonderful faculty and staff how much we appreciate all the time and hard work that they put into giving our children the very best educational experience possible. For the last Thursday of each month, I am organizing volunteers to provide lunch for them in the Teacher’s Lounge.
Use the Sign Up Genius below to volunteer. We need about 4 volunteers to bring mains, sides, salads, desserts, etc. Our next Teacher Luncheon is Thursday, January 31. Feel free to sign up for any month that works for you. It’s a great way to show our appreciation and earn your volunteer hours. (Every $20 spent on food = 1 volunteer hour.)
Contact Katy Coleman with any questions. Thank you!
Nicola Beard will be partnering with Donna Brain in our Montessori based preschool room. Nicola has a degree in early childhood development from the University of New Hampshire. She comes to us from a preschool in Kirkland where she created and implemented unit plans, developed daily schedules, and provided consistent two-way communication for families. Nicola is a wonderful fit for our school family and we are so happy to have her on board this year.
We are very happy to welcome Maureen Wittbold as our exploratory preschool teacher. Maureen has worked for many years in early childhood and elementary education. Maureen is a children’s book author and has even taught at the university level. She is familiar with the archdiocese having worked in area Catholic schools and is very happy to be returning to Catholic education this year as a new member of the St. Al’s community.
Please join us in welcoming Ms. Beard and Ms. Wittbold to our school community!
We are happy to welcome our new middle school math teacher, Jamie Walker. Mrs. Walker comes to us with a background in technology, electrical engineering, and mathematics. She has worked as both a math teacher and math specialist for several years in the archdiocese, even serving under our very own Mrs. Foisy for a time at St. Pius X.
Mrs. Walker brings a mix of hands-on project-based learning as well as more traditional methods, making math acquisition fun and accessible for a variety of learning styles. In addition to Math, Mrs. Walker will also teach 7/8 Boys Religion and Homeroom. She is a St. Al’s parishioner and lector for Sunday morning mass, so she is an excellent fit for this new role.
Please join us in welcoming Mrs. Walker to St. Alphonsus Parish School.
It’s hard to believe that the school year is drawing to an end already. It’s time to think about End of the Year gifts for teachers and staff.
If you are interested in contributing to an End of the Year SCRIP gift certificate for your student’s teacher(s) or any other staff, please complete the attached form and return with your check to the school office no later than Friday, June 1st. If you return your form and payment before May 31st, it will count toward May Madness!

Teacher appreciation week is coming up! On May 7th through 11th we will treat our wonderful staff to a daily buffet in the staff room.
This is a great opportunity to thank our teachers for all they do for our children at St. Als!
